The 90ís called: they want their website back.

Iíll admit that it is probably unfair to criticize a site that Iím not nor have ever been a member, but I think the stats speak for themselves.

Like many here, Iím always on the hunt for new sites. The main Lightspeed sites have long been on my radar because I really like solo girl sites. But since Iíve been burned by several, I tread lightly now.

So in that vein I looked at Lightspeed World, which now appears to offer access to all the Lightspeed girlís sites for one price. That price, $40, is a bit steep but I measure on overall value rather than price alone. So what do you get for that money? Access to ďover 80 gigabytes of original content!Ē Yes, over 80GB! Iím guessing that actually means just slightly over 80 and not 1TB of original content. But it gets better. You like HD video? Well be prepared to be blown away with full 640x480 resolution! For those of you still on dial-up there is also 320x240, but that will still look good on your 14Ē monitor. What else, you ask? How about a daily download limit of 4GB! No big deal, really, since you donít want to be tying up your phone line with downloads for more than 12 hours, right?

Look, in all my posts and reviews here I try to be fair, but in this case the numbers simply donít add up. It looks like the site just gave up a decade or more ago. But I know they didnít because I heard Mr. Lightspeedís lawyer interviewed on a radio program just 18 months ago. And yes, there is a Mr. Lightspeed, but the interviewer did accidentally refer to him as ďMr. Lightyear.Ē Mr. Lightspeedís primary complaint was piracy and I agree with him on that. I despise piracy because it is killing a hobby that I have. As I get older Iíll have to drop some hobbies and I suspect that porn will win out over mountain biking as I creep into my 50s so I want porn to stick around and show that by buying memberships. But the thing is that any membership I buy has to have objective value. 2,000 5-minute videos in 640x480 resolution just has no objective value in a world where I can buy a membership to dozens or hundreds of sites that offer true HD and donít impose such strict limits for less money. And I am talking sites with original content too.

And it can be done. Take sites like ALS Scan. Theyíve been around since before many PU members ranked girls before Tonka trucks and they offer some of the best stuff on the internet, in HD and no limits Ė for a lower price than Lightspeed. Iím guessing that if Lightspeed had followed a similar trajectory as ALS Scan then things might be different.

Iím grateful for TBP and PU for saving me from getting burned. If this site was even half as modern as ALS Scan Iíd join and rejoin and rejoin again.

elephant (65) Hi ahh yes dear old Lightspeed World, many fond memories I have to say and was I think either the first or second site I ever subscribed to. Still today no one has beat the Jordan Capri (who to me will always be one of my alltime favs) striptease video, I think its more down to nostaligia reasons though as it was one of those videos that made me go oh wow. I loved the early playfulness and groups of girls together making cute vids. It was great back then for me and I enjoyed the site and thought the investment was worth it.

But really these days I wouldn't pay $40 for the quality of the vids, some of the vid files are so tiny making them un-watchable these days. I really rarely ever watch any but a handful of classics that I would adore if they were HD. Be great if they came back with 6 or more new cute girls and concentrated just on these girls and make some HD movies of them. You are right though certain sites from back then moved with the times, really wish Lightspeed had and was still producing today. Wonder where Jordan is these days.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane with your post rearadmiral

rearadmiral (334) REPLY TO #1 - elephant :

I've never been a member to any Lightspeed site but way back in my early days of downloading porn I suspect my interests were a lot like yours. I joined several "Little" sites, like Little April and Little Summer. Like you, I've kept some of the videos even though they are almost unwatchable due to being such low resolution. Little April is 400x300! The strange thing is that these sites seem to still exist. I can't imagine anyone who joins now would be terribly happy to find the quality that low. One solo site that I still have a lot from is Brooke Skye. I see the site is delisted here due to some shenanigans on the part of the site owners, but I've also heard that the site was taken down when Brooke called it quits. At least that site offered some decent video resolutions.

But it seems that Lightspeed is trying to survive in 2013 with a 2003 business model. And I'll bet that if/when the business fails the site owner will blame piracy and ignore the fact that his site is woefully out of date.

I agree 100% that this is an entirely reversible problem. All Lightspeed needs to do is get some new models and start shooting in updated resolutions. And while I don't like download caps, I can live with them if the site is honest about them and they are reasonable. 4GB/day in 2013 is definitely not reasonable.
